Poll: Low Favorability Ratings For Pelosi, Reid - Political Hotsheet - CBS News
i wonder why their numbers are SO LOW!
they're each at roughly THREE TO ONE negative to positive
and the 36% of respondents who say they "haven't heard enough..."
well, just wait til they hear
because, clearly, those who've followed all that's GONE DOWN do NOT approve
State, Federal and local taxes do change from year to year. They are not a constant. They, like the cost of materials and energy fluctuate and are part of the cost of doing business.
"This Administration will constantly strive to promote an ownership society in America. We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest that more people own their own home. After all, if you own your own home, you have a vital stake in the future of our country."" GWB
How much did your business make last year ???
How many businesses have you owned ??
Have you ever been responsible for providing paychecks to your employees??
Have you ever signed an IRS payroll tax deposit??
Have you ever signed a business tax return ???
Never mind, I already know the answer to all of these questions.
No, that is not how people like ME, nor other companies I work with, determine the size of our workforces. Not even remotely close.
Companies operate based on risk and margin. (When it looked like Obama was going to be elected, everybody started slashing their staff and budgets to the bone; we knew what was coming.)
When taxes are low, we take risks. The tolerance of risk is based on the overhead we project, which includes taxes and regulations, AS WELL AS THE TARGET CLIENT'S ability to spend, which impacts what sort of margin I can expect to realize.
When you increase my risk, you impact my expected margin. In order to get that in balance, I have to cut costs, which means I have to reduce staff.
That, in turn, makes for an economy of fewer people/companies that have disposable income or growth reserves that are necessary to buy my products. It becomes a spiralling self-fulfilling prophecy.
And now, with Obama's big government and taxes, I will eventually be forced to get rid of the healthcare plan we provide our employees and force them on to a government plan. I'd be better off paying the $3,000 fine per employee, frankly.
So it's MEDICAID FOR EVERYONE! Yay.
